AbstractThis article describes an National Science Foundation-supported workshop that help introduce students to research ethics in the science and engineering fields. The workshop series employs a method where "black and white" video vignettes and cases introduce the students to elements of research misconduct, and specially designed exercises - layered cases- help the students transition to ambiguity by adding complicating circumstances onto simple and straight-forward core scenarios. Transitioning step-by step to the gray world opens students to the need to discuss moral complexity and positions them to understand the forms of disagreement and ambiguity that arise even among the well-intentioned.
